PODCAST: HE LIED TO US IN SONG!

Published by Patch on

BETRAYAL

Lekdog does some snooping and uncovers Patch’s WEB OF LIES and unmasks him as a fraud, a traitor and a scoundrel to the cause of being Bad At Supercoach. Meaning this whole seven weeks of song and dance about being bad at things was a charade, a ruse, a lie.

Trust has been broken. Fortunately, he makes up for it by making a bad “Green Eggs and Ham” joke and a good new segment.

After differences are resolved, Lek and Patch talk injuries, rookies and more premium options than you could poke a stick at at the most stick-pokingest day of your life and had an electrified stick-poking machine.

They also ramble about things, because of course they do, the loveable idiots.

  • Please rate us on iTunes
  • Please tell us what you want us to do or not do with this whole podcast-y business.
  • Please tell us what the hell is wrong with Dangerfield
  • Be most excellent to each other
  • Please someone come and tell Patch his rank is actually really bad and make him – and Lek – feel better about this rather awkward situation.

What targets are you looking at this week, community? How are you travelling?

Can't wait to listen to this on the way to work tommrrow 😄p.s ranked 998 overall at the moment.

Russty_

Nice work with the rank Brad !, keep it going.

Rabbits16

solid rank.

AlbertonOval

Top work mate!

theRealPod

Nice Brad keep it up

Patch

Yes mate, killing it!

Lekdog

Killing it Brad!

MRmoMAN

With already using 8 trades, and 7 players out of full premo including billings who is not playing like one at the moment, should i be holding walters for the 4 weeks? going for league wins only, however have cash on the line in a competitive league

Russty_

4 weeks can easily turn into 6 or 8 Mr Moustache man…I'd punt his injured butt, to a high scoring player.

Derek

that is too long to wait. trade him

Filth Wizard

Has a breakeven of 158 will be cheap when he returns.

Lazza

4 weeks was the initial prognosis – Freo are now saying 2-3 weeks and likely to come back sooner rather than later. I’m holding … but I do have issues elsewhere … like needing to trade Flog1to Flog2… and Buddy on hold too..

SC_Sixty6

Cheers for staying away from Cripps boys!

Nice rank there Patch, you definitely fooled me 😉
No need to use luck as an excuse for your early success.

Patch

Hahah cheers mate – we'll see if it lasts. I'm still the bloke that traded Nat Fyfe to Scott Selwood in the latter stages of last year like a GOSH DARNED IDIOT MACHINE

Lekdog

For the record I was against that

BlueBaggerJosh

Gonna wait till walters drops in price (injury) to trade billings if i do as he could still turn it around as evidenced by last years similar scoring. Thinking this week Murray to cheap def premo, then next week banfield to spargo and holman to JPK. should i trade in ryan, howe or sicily?

Jeffrey

I would go Murray to Sicily this week with Sicily's very low B/E

Will

No Dickhead policy, no matter how tempting he is. He can't help himself that lad.

Dermin8r

I turned Murray and Coffield into Hurn and Mirra

Finnius

Macrae or Cripps community? I can't split them.

Russty_

Go for the Cheaper one Finn, which is also the one with the higher ceiling.

Rabbits16

Macrae with next 2 opponents against brisbane & goldcoast

Russty_

Hey guys, thanks for the cast…Danger's going ok, was averaging 117 last week and 112 this week. If his Cheeseballs coach comes to his senses anytime soon and plays him in the guts more, he will start banging out some Dangerworthy scores soon.
The being most excellent to eachother is up to you guys, maybe please keep more of an eye on the forums cause there's some horrible abuse and bullying going on here lately, with no apparent moderation. There are Impersonators, and some nasty people..again.
I'm going shit this year and so are both of you , cause you asked me to say that …but I will get better, hopeful-bloody-y.

I chopped Bonner's head off tonight, and enjoyed it, I did it with a fire forged Damascus steel blade Sword, and it was swift but fair…so long fool's gold fakey fake phucker!
🙂

Lekdog

Hey Russty, we try and keep on top of things but amongst thousands of comments a day it can be hard. I actually think it has been really positive in here for the last couple of weeks, I’m loving the conversations people are having!

SC_Donkey

Scored 2149 this week, suprisingly moved up 1000 spots in the ranking.

Just wondering on how is everyone else are going with premos(keepers) and trades.
I am 6 premos(keepers) away with 21 trades and 200k in the bank, not sure if it's ok or not. Hoping to get full premos(keepers) by Rd 12, I should have 10 trades left for the rest of the season after the bye rounds. Is 10 trades enough to keep me going to season end?

RobDog

Hi Sc_Donkey, I think you are going through your trades too quickly if you want 10 left after the byes. If you trade all three each bye that means you only have one double trade between now and the byes. If you go one up one down after Port/GC to get a Gray or Ryder, you have no other trades before the byes. 6 off a full team should have you getting pretty good scores, I would try to hold off as long as you can before any trades. Lots of injuries this year and they will take a few trades for sure, so factor that in.

Derek

the idea is to get to full premium asap. you need to make trades to do that.

this year there are many of the keepers who have a bye in Round 14. it is very late to be bringing those fellas in after round 15, so most people will have thier round 14 bye premiums in place early and pick up the other premiums coming out of rounds 10, 12 & 13.

i would expect to be close to full premium round 13

the best indicator of how close teams are to 'Full Premium" is to look at their team value. we need to be getting close to $14mil.

most of us are still along way from $14mil. I'm around $11.8m and thinking where is the extra $2.2m coming from. gulp!

SC_Donkey

Been kinda lucky with my players I started with, there were few issues i had, Ryder, Kelly and Rocky. Rocky was big fail a wasted trade right there, Cox idea which was a fail due to Ryder injury and Taylor the guy is getting enough of the pill, the output just wasn't there.

Right on Derek, definitely right about trying to get full premos(keepers) asap by the bye rounds. Remaining trades we have in hand are for injuries and maybe a couple of corrective trades for players who's dropping off with their performance.

SC_Donkey

Tnx Dog,

I have planned and structured myself for the bye rounds, the six premos(keepers) that's needed to get to full will be even spread through the bye rounds along with rookies. Looking to get Gray after his bye to cover for the main byes, also have my eyes on Westhoff both players will come in handy.

I think all I need is 11 trades from here up to rd 12&13 to get full premos(keepers) that will leave me with 10 trades for rest of the season.

Matt English

I’m 7 off full premo with 25 trades left

joe

6 spots currently 190 rank 21 trades left need 4 backs and 2 mids hurley yeo simpson ?mids oliver crouch

joe

need around 18 trades at byes need to stop trading asap

SC_Sixty6

No you don't. 2 or 3 years ago the overall winner ran out of trades in rd 17.

joe

that would be a nerve wrecking 5 weeks

Rabbits16

2,098points this week lowest this season and moved down 1166 spots

joe

well done rabbit

Bad_News_Brown

20 trades left 3 players off full premo.

SC_Donkey

Deym! You must've got lucky, dodging all the injuries and turds.

SC_Sixty6

In his eyes he is 3 premo off full premo but in terms of top 6 in their respective positions it's far from premo no doubt.

StevoRivo

Have 26 trades & $265k. With Petracca possible to miss again and Zac Langdon doubtful, is it time to move them on? Also have Holman & Garlett taking up bench space.

I have Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs. Don’t have Yeo, Gray, Hurley, Bont or Oliver. Not sold on Zerrett and itching to get Crouch.

Trade or hold?

Derek

Petracca will miss this week. i read what they had to do to his finger, mate you are not playing AFL a week after that!

StevoRivo

Thanks Derek, thought so. Trades this week but now it’s down to who goes first?
ATM it’s in this order….
Holman, Langdon, Garlett, then Petracca.

Derek

i havn't heard how Langdon's leg is. If he is missing a number of weeks he should go first, if only a couple of weeks, might hold him.

Garlet has to go if not named. Somehow i think he will get a game.

Holman has fattened up and should be chopped, but only if you need the cash this week, if you don't need cash he can sit there another week.

petracca is a hold. averaging 86. melbourne has Saints, Suns & Carlton coming up, although i think he misses this week.

StevoRivo

Thanks Derek. Will wait on injury updates re Langdon. Yes, Garlett is next to go.

Sellars1226

Get Crouch next week, pretty sure he's going to drop again

StevoRivo

So how about trading this week Holman & Landgdon to Zerrett (M7) & Cole via dpp swings?

Next week considering Garlett & Banfield to Crouch & Spargo.

Brim_Cat

Id trade banfield before holman, but good moves mate

TommyC99

Would it be better to pick Dumin this week as a rookie option, or risk it and go early on another rookie? Picking up Cripps this week and I need to paint th fence to make it happen

SC_Kev7

Personal choice on how you feel about taking rookies that aren’t yet on the bubble

Jeff

Just the one trade this week

S. Murray to Sicily

Will Sicily be a top 6 defender?

Josh

If he stops being a flog and getting suspended I think he’s as safe a bet as anyone

Derek

With Zac Dawson retiring last year, it does open the door for someone else in my top 6 defenders.

I think there are 4 who stand out at the moment and pick themselves: Laird, Yeo, Hurley, Simpson.

the other two places could be from a group of 10-15 players. Sicily is averaging 104 as the 3rd highest defender so he is in that group.

Daniel Z

Average? Yes.
Total? No.

Derek

he will have a 22 at some stage this year when the opposition get under his skin.

Darcy Franks

Do I get rid of Zorko and Murray for Cole and Macrae or Jarrod Garlett for Ronke and Murray for Sicily

Patch

Easy for me to say not having him but Zorko will – must – turn it around. Surely. Would hold him until last and upgrade around him, but that old logic has failed me in the past.

Still say the second option for now.

Daniel

Thoughts on JPK Community I don’t think he will score 2 50s in a row again! Surely some value there or get Merrett ?

Dildor

Go look at his scores for the last few years, always has a quiet patch generally around the start of the year. After that he bangs out the scores, looks pretty similar this year IMO.

Derek

JPK doesn't have a massive ceiling like some other players, and that is why his average have been around the 110. super consistent and durable. i honestly think his best SC days are behind him because of the speed of the game now and the less stoppages. however, this is probably more highlighted early in the season when everyone is fit and healthy and the grounds are hard and fast. Wait until everyone slows down a bit and the grounds become heavy, JPK will come again.

he is $441k!!!! how is this possible.

great value for someone who should average 105-110 for the rest of the season. Doesn't have a huge ceiling

FreddoFrog

Good thing he gets to play on the SCG because the other grounds don't get heavy. Etihad is the same in sub zero as plus 30 and Adelaide,Gold Coast and Perth drain faster than a superaccount after fees.
JPK looking like a dinosaur that you roll out for exhibition matches in Cairns or Darwin during the wet.

Dizzlekicks

Note though – after last weeks big game, he's a big chance to cop the dreaded Jacobs tag this week

FreddoFrog

JPK finishing like a Bull is a myth started by somebody else, in reality he has been SC poison for the last 5-years for SC coaches with finals dreams.

2017 he Didn't play at all in rounds 16,20 or 21 destroying the finals hopes of anybody who had him but if you excuse that, the final 6 games that he did play included a 50, 97 and 96. Hardly trouser stretching from one of your top mids.

2016 included 2-sub-100 games in the 4-weeks of SC finals
2015 he was a must have, ave 125 during SC finals with a low of 112 in the SC Semi-final

2014 he spat out a 39 in the SC elimation Final and missed the final 2-games (rested before actual finals)

2013 his final 6-games were 82,68, then SC finals-93, 136, 89, and 101 in the SC GF.

JPK is SC fools gold. Always has been and always will be.
He does OK in DreamTeam though I think

joe

Avoid like the plague. Last week was a virtuoso performance against a midfield setup with glaring problems, absences etc. Even then, he was utterly [email protected] for three quarters. Then, minus a concussed tagger, he went nuts. It's an irrelevant score.

Even at his best, he only averaged 109. Even after last week, this season's average is 84. That's the sort of numbers he was posting a decade ago.

meph

Hello jock Reynolds family, have the issue of Walters to deal with and have narrowed it down to three options.

1. a straight swap for Mclean
2. Drop Coffield for Spargo, switch Walters to mids(need Spargo for that) then trade him up to titch.
3. Downgrade him to Ronke then next week bring both titch and dusty in.

All options have some cons, option 1 means ill need 2 trades for titch next week. Option 2 and 3 means two rookies onfield up forward with probably no bench cover with Langdon being injured.

Sana

Option 1. The other two options mean bringing in rookies early who could get injured/dropped before a price rise. If you already have Langdon out you don't want to risk more outs wihtout being able to make $$. And Mclean is dominating, a lock for top 6 fwds you'd have to think.

Tyler

Looking to bring in another midfield gun and can’t decide between Pendles & Oliver leaving me with 90 or do I get Zach Merrett and leave myself 170k

Dice_real

I'd go Oliver, I think his ceiling has gone up a little this season

Derek

i have Oliver locked in my top 7 mids. he has had a slow start to the year but is still averaging 111 (affected by the Jacobs tag in round 3) he a gun.

FreddoFrog

The worry is that he only got 89 (without a tag) on a day when Max had 42h.o and scored 168 in SC.
He appears to be very easy to push too close to the stoppage contest which results in a lot of the taps going over his head.
Duck Carey should be taking credit for identifying this any day now, just as soon as his assisstant reads this and checks to make sure that it's true.

Da Boysh

Hi Community,

Thoughts on Murray > Spargo with DPP
Banfield > Macrae

OR

Double downgrade to get Spargo + Dunman and hold off on Macrae..

DEF: Laird, Hurley, Shaw, Doedee, Murray, Naughton (Richards, Murphy)

MID: Titch,Fyfe, Dusty, Coniglio, Cripps, Merrett, Kelly, Finlayson (Holman, Coffield, Banfield)

RUC: Gawn, Nank (Lavender)

FWD: Gray, Heeney, Sicaflog, Petracca, Smith, Fritsch (ZGL, Guelfi)

22 trades left

Da Boysh

Sorry,

22 trades left before I make these trades XD

Da Boysh

i swear I am special bloody hell.. 22 trades AFTER I make these trades jesus…

Derek

i would HOLD this week.

team looks great. No major problems i can see.

Da Boysh

Thanks Derek!

Reece

Merrett or Oliver community ?

Derek

you would pick Oliver just because he has Gawn playing in his team. Oliver is a gun. top 7 mid. contested beast. massive upside.

Derek

melbournes next 10 games, they only play two teams who finished in the top 8 last year, Adelaide and Port.

Saints, Suns, Carlton, Crows, Dogs, Collingwood, Port, Saints (again), Fremantle, Dogs (again)…..

redherringfc

Merrett now, Oliver next week.

BadgerHoney7

2 trades this week:
Walters to Gray, Banfield to Merrett

Next week:
Holman and Garlett to Spargo and Mutch/Worpel

Week after:
Jack Henry to McLean

Do I go Merrett or JPK?

Da Boysh

Merrett is going to bounce back I say him

MOD143

Currently ranked 157 overall. Team names Endangered. Midfield set atm with zerret at M7. Last midfield trade is t Kelly to danger.

Derek

nice start to the season.

DavidSA

Grats mate and ty for not spamming the site on every thread too bonus!

Derek

Clearly has the community to thank, but just didn’t have the right words to express his gratitude.

joe

great side mod one of the best ive seen

MOD143

Thanks Joe, Its been a huge help following community members like you to set up my season.

Patch

You ripper MOD!

Derek

The coach was saying on AFL360 last night that he copped a corked calf a few weeks ago that has slowed him down and that he was also a little under-done in the preseason because of the hammy. hammy is ok now.

AB13

look on youtube

BlueBoy

DEF: Laird, Simpson, Ryan, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Mirra, Murphy)

MID: Titch, Fyfe, Neale, Coniglio, Cripps, O'Meara, Kelly, Petracca (Holman, Barry, Banfield)

RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)

FWD: McLean, Walters, Sicaflog, Smith, Guelfi, Fritsch (Henry, English)

Moving on Walters and Murray this week. Have money to get two premiums. Who are the best two to pick up out of Macrae, Hurley, Heeney and Oliver?

I like Macrae but I have too many players with the round 12 bye.

Zerrett is one head knock away from a big break and I don't want to risk it.

Waiting another week or two for Danger.

Any advice would be appreciated.

TheGreatBozza

I'd say Oliver and Hurley for ceiling, but honestly can't go wrong with either of those 4 choices

DacZawson

I'd say by the end of the season, Heeney and Hurley most likely be top 3 in their position, so you'll definitely need them at some point
Disregarding price, I'd go Oliver and Heeney

KingWinter7

Is Sicily a decent trade in option with a 33 break even this week ???
Have 263k in the bank

Could either trade out:
Murray – 54
Naughton – 27
Coffield – 54
Banfield – 41

SC_Kev7

I’m sure you’re aware of the risks Sicily poses, KW. If you’re cool with that I’d cut Coffield

Willymack1234

Cripps, Macrae or Oliver?

Rabbits16

Im going Macrae. Playing brisbane and gold coast next 2 rds and he has a big average against those opponents

theRealPod

Oliver in better team, higher ceiling and he's a gun

DacZawson

Coffield down to Mirra/Duman this week and Banfield down to Spargo
Next week it'll be nice picking up Dusty for less than 600k.

I assume the lack of talk about Dusty is due to most people having him already?

redherringfc

I’m waiting for his price to drop. BE in the 180’s.

hoping in the next 3 weeks it goes Mitchell, Oliver, Dusty.

SideshowBob

Dusty not worth talking about yet, can't trade him out can't trade him in.
3 round ave of 106 dropped $50k over the past 2-weeks and predicted to drop another $30k this week then Next week he has Jacobs at etihad. If he scores 140 against Jacobs he'll only drop $10k if he scores 80 against Jacobs he'll drop another $30k.
So, he's not a top 10 mid over last 3 rounds and has three tough games coming, he's dropped over $50k in past 2-weeks and will drop another $40k-$60k over next 2-weeks.
Potentially get him for $540k after round 9

TBone

Hey guys, different approach for me this year. Took too long to get to full premo last year so I’m thinking Holman out this week, swing Finlayson into mids and pick up Howe. Would love to grab a Merrett or Hurley but only have 498k after trading Holman out. Any one else have any suggestions of upgrades I could do this week?

Laird, Simmo, Yeo, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray (Murphy, O’Connor)

Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cogs, Parker, T. Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Barry)

Gawn, Nank (Olango)

Heeney, Smith, Sicily, Billings, Fritsch, Guelfi (ZGL, Henry)

26 trades remaining.

Cheers guys 🙂

Goat

Wait on selections to see about ZGL's knee and which rookies seem secure but you might raise the cash to complete either of those trades through swapping him out early to a new earner.

KSinny

Not sure if I should do any trades this week boys.
Here's my team

DEF: Laird, Simmo, Sicily, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Naughton, Murphy)

MID: Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Zerret, Kelly, Holeman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Higgins)

RUC: Gawn, Nank (Olango)

FWD: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, Guelfi (Henry, Keefe)

I've got $339k in the bank and was thinking of trading out Holeman to Hurly via Finlayson but because Holeman has a breakeven of 35 not sure if I should or not. Thoughts?

TBone

Hey KSinny, that’s a pretty good plan mate. By any chance do you have enough cash to go Banfield to Howe via Finlayson dpp then trade Petracca (won’t be back this week) to R. Gray? Many downgrade options you can trade Holman to next week.

Alternatively if it works better for you bye structure, you could go Banfield to Yeo via Finlayson dpp, and Petracca to McLean. Good luck mate!

KSinny

Yeh was thinking the second option sounds good cheers

Derek

I would. Having Holman on field instead or Hurley doesn’t make a lot of sense. It’s all about scoring points and getting to full premium asap

Doc

Trade banfield instead

Sully321

thoughts on walters to danger?

KSinny

Hold off on danger for at least another week or two, he still has a high break even and isn't scoring any better than players cheaper so I would wait for him to show some better form.

Shake_n_Bake_

Salem out for 1 or 2 weeks good news maybe for Hibbard owners.

BadgerHoney7

could also be good for spargo job security, both can play that small wing role.

Steeeve

Planning to sit tight this week and hold fire on any trades. Rookies will be on the bubble next week, and premos will be fallen. Wish we had four trades next week!

DacZawson

I wouldn't mind Supercoach trialling an unlimited trade per week system.
Would mean that you'd have to be incredibly patient with how you use your trades.

Derek

The EPL fantasy does that but for every trade more than 1 it cost points. Maybe we could buy a trade for $200k

Ahmad rubas

Yeah I like fpl for that reason because you can do well many different ways. One of the best fpl managers who is having a bad season this season has a very aggressive transfer strategy and takes many hits which hasn't paid off this season meanwhile another manager imo the best in the world is the complete opposite being patient and avoiding point hits. The thing I like about it is they are 2 very different strategies yet both produce amazing results

anthdepa

I currently have 497,000 with 25 trades,

DEF (Laird, Savage, Naughton, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray) – Coffield, Mirra

MID ( Mitchell, Martin, Fyfe, J.Kelly, Parker, Coniglio, T.Kelly, Holman) – Banfield, Barry, Brayshaw

RUCK (GAWN, NANK) – Cameron

FWD (Heeney, Franklin, McLean, Smith, Fritsch, Guelfi) – Henry, Giles-Langdon

Trades I could do –
Out – Naughton and Banfield for Hurn and Macrae
Out – Naughton and Nank for Grundy and (Simpson or Hurn)

DacZawson

Grundy under an injury cloud and no point trading Nank at this point.
Go for the double upgrade

redherringfc

Naughton looks like he’s just coming good. I’d look at Banfield first.

JAZZA

I Like the trade get Naughton out i would go for Hurn i real POD there and i would get rid of Nank to his time is done very good trades i currently ranked 879 and thats pretty good but i think you will have a better team then me if u do those trades

TheGreatBozza

Ranked 1530 with 26 trades and $256K bank

B: Laird, Savage, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Naughton (Richards, Murphy)
M: Fyfe, Martin, Mitchell, Cripps, Pendlebury, Coniglio, Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Garlett, Higgins)
R: Grundy, Gawn (Hayes)
F: McLean, Smith, Walters, Sicily, Billings, English (Giles-Langdon, Fritsch)

Thoughts on trades this week? I may need English as R3 cover in case Grundy misses, leaving me thin up forward. At this point I'm leaning to Walters > Heeney, and holding my rookies. I want Danger but thinking of waiting another week

Derek

I hope for your sake English isn’t rested this week. He looked tired last week.

David

Thoughts on worpel communtiy?

Who’s the top pick of the rookies coming through

BadgerHoney7

safest is probably spargo at the moment, but worpel was also very good and looked like he had been around for years.

Crowboy94

Just wait one more week and see who does better this week.

Derek

Shields will be back soon, maybe even this week.

dontblushbaby

Thinking Cripps will be top 8 mid ?, no one tagging him

BadgerHoney7

top 8 mid for sure, has been tagged but can beat it due to how big he his.

Ando

Hey Community! How do the following trades look?

Holman to Merrett

Christensen to Sicily

I know Sicily's a flog but I'm willing to take the risk with limited options in the forward line.

Ando

Alternatively I could get Deledio or Taranto, thoughts?

Derek

Delidio is a massive injury risk and Taranto will be affected when Kelly is back. Neither will be top 8

Derek

If you were to get Sicily you arn’t allowed to complain to anyone when he either gets suspended again or scores a 22 because the opposition got under his skin.

As a hawks fan I’ll be cheering him on, but he won’t be in my SC team…. I don’t think.

BadgerHoney7

I think Sicily is safer than Taranto and Deledio, scores so far of 125, 110, 123 out of the four games hes played, I think that says enough.

Shake_n_Bake_

Lynch out till after bye rd.

Crowboy94

1 trade this week.
Stephenson to Cripps via DPP

Leaves me with 23 trades

Holty01

I think its time to start painting the fence.

Crowboy94

I'm waiting one more week to cull Holman and banfield. Traded Stephenson to Cripps this week though

Holty01

Nice. Banfield this week for me. Murray and Holman next week. Then look at Naughton Doedee and Finlayson.

Frozen water bomber

What colour you thinking holty? Must be red and black?

JugHead

Gunna trade out Petracca this week down to a def rookie via Finlayson dpp and build the warchest. Then I can start painting with gold dust next week when there is better value. There will be bubble boys available and some low priced premos.

Dale

I’m moving on bonner. I have 612k.
I can get anyone I like but really chasing good value to keep a kitty aside for Cripps/macrae next week.. so Thinking maybe seeds or do I play it safe with a Hurley/Simpson?
Other option is swing Sicily back and jump on Deledio? 470k only worry is his track record stayin fit …. Timmy Taranto still tempts me at 440k too.

HELP please

redherringfc

Get Hurley.

CalebCripps922

Hello Lads I have 23 trades left and 70k in the bank
Should i go LDU down to Spargo this week to give me 140k and then next week go Banfeild to Worpel and Holman to Zerrett or hold the LDU trade.

Rabbits16

whats the go with Parfitt?

Crowboy94

Will be back this week.

Frozen water bomber

Not sure about that one crowboy, i think he'll miss again unforunately

Rabbits16

whats his injury frozen?

Frozen water bomber

'Sore' foot apparently. Chris scott likes to be a politician when he talks injuries. Could be back this week could be out a month, wait for team selections mate

Rabbits16

thanks crowboy hopefully

Brim_Cat

Will miss this week, not too sure how long he is out though

Rabbits16

bloody hell. carnage. firs franklin then petracca then parfitt. nasty fwds

Rabbits16

oh and ZGL

Jordan

Which two players do I bring in for bonner and murray? I have 337k atm
1. Merret and acres (I won’t be able to get danger next week but week after I could)
2. Cripps and Duman/Cole
3. Treloar and Duman

I’m very stuck.. I like the looks of treloar this year but know that cripps is a star and will continue to tear it up! Merret and Acres are good value IMO but I am worried about not having enough money for danger next week.

Thoughts?? Cheers in advance

I’d persoanlly go cripps and cole if you were looking to get danger in next week. Don’t know why you would be getting danger next week though – he will most likely lose more value in the coming weeks and pick him when he bottoms out. Wouldn’t trade him in til he shows some form

Jim_bob321

What to do with Walters..
Thinking downgrading Holman to Spargo to enable DPP so i can get a midfielder
Thinking of getting Jelwood, Neale or Merrett but need some help..
Merrett can't handle a tag, and Neale seems to be a bit inconsistent, perhaps only doing well when Fyfe is getting tagged
Need some help community thanks

Derek

Neale will do well while Walters is out

TOPHAWK1

Bomber Thompson has just been charged with trafficking ice. I am blown away. WTF was he thinking! Very sad how far this bloke has fallen over the last few years.

BadgerHoney7

such upsetting news, can't believe it.

Holty01

Horrible news but it really makes you think how much of a part he had in the Essendon debacle a few years back. So many got dragged through the coals and Bomber seemed to get more of a slap on the wrist.

Deckcrow

that's you thinking is it Holty Hmmm Bomber and ASADA were in it together…..genius

Ross 'sexpest' lyon

Big difference between performance enhancing drugs and recreational drugs. He got a slap on the wrist because he wasnt the coach. Do you really think if he was to blame they wouldve made him coach?

Holty01

Settle down lads. It is an opinion. He obviously has connections out there. Did not for one second say he was in it with ASADA. Just remember, he bought the weapon to Essendon. Who inturn Dank was employed by Essendon. The weapon was employed in 2007 by Geelong who had links with Dank. 2007 was the start of Geelongs fantastic run and who was coach at the time, Bomber. This may all be coincedence but he was the one responsible for bringing them to the club.

Frozen water bomber

Trying to make excuses for cheating, dont bring geelong down to the level of your foolish club. Clearly an essendon supporter!

Holty01

Lol and nope not a Essendon supporter. All im saying is he bought those 2 to the club. Geelong have never been found guilty of anything so innocent before proven guilty.

Frozen water bomber

So then hes to blame because hes in charge of everything at the club as an assistant coach. Wonder why he got such a slap on the wrist…

Holty01

Once again ill say this one more time. He was involved in bringing those 2 to the club. Yes he was not the coach but he was still part of the saga. If you have knowledge of what is going on, you are just as much to blame.

Pete

Theres no proof him or hird knew they were cheating. Hird got a harsher punishment due to being the head coach. Whether or not bomber played a part in them coming to the club is irrelevant. This also has nothing to do with what Thompson was charged with today!

Holty01

You are right it doesnt. But what has happened today must certainly question his credibility? It was the duty of care for their players (especially the younger ones who probably had no say) which is the issue. Yes they said they didnt know what they were taking was not legal but at the same time had no idea what they were taking.

Frozen water bomber

If i got you a job, and you got caught stealing from the worksite who would be to blame? Me or you?

Holty01

It would depend if you had knowledge of me stealing and you did nothing about it!

Frozen water bomber

Well obviously! But thats just the point theres no proof bomber knew they were cheating and said 'ah well, lets hope they dont catch us'. To say that both him and hird shouldve had the same punishment is just nonsense!

Holty01

Where did i say Bomber deserved the same punishment as Hird? Plus Bomber did know. He came out and said he knew what was going on and didnt support it. But didnt do anything about it either. No point going on about this as its not sc relevant at all. We will agree to disagree.

Frozen water bomber

I apologise, you didnt say they deserve the same punishment but you said bomber was as much to blame as hird, which i disagree with as he wasnt the head coach. Most of what you have said is correct just didnt agree with what you were implying in your first message.Like you said though agree to disagree, but nothing wrong with a bit of healthy banter! Good luck in SC this week champ!

Holty01

And well said. Respect anyone who comes back with a reply like that. Everyone will have an opinion and not everyone will agree. As long as you can have some banter and still have a beer together afterwards its all worth it.

Phil

Neither have Essendon….#justsaying

Frozen water bomber

Must've been selling ASADA some of his famous frozen water to keep them quiet, dont ya reckon holty?

BrownlowBoy

Make of this what you will.

Bells

Wow. Was he in product development? Seems to have been testing the product?

SC editor

How is this SC relevant?

Holty01

Sorry mate. You are correct.

SC_Sixty6

Jog on flog.

Frozen water bomber

Couldnt have said it any better sixty6!

SC editor

How is this SC relevant, and why are being rude..again?

Russty_

Pretty sad day for Footy, I used to enjoy his comments on AFL360..apparently they found his DNA all over several different types of drugs and drugbags, really sad news.

James

Any news on ZGL?

FreddoFrog

Listed as a test in today's injury update

redherringfc

A strange question, but who do people think i should put on the field out of Kreuzer and Lycett? (assuming Kreuzer is back)

Normally it would be a no brainer, but Lycett’s put some good scores together.

Derek

If Ryder doesn’t play, my boy Lycett might be in for a nice day out….. oh, so might NicNat.

Hyphen00

Hi Guys,

What’s your thoughts on Travis Boak?
He would be replacing Walters if I go with him. Averaging 96 and looks to be having more of a crack this year?

BoltonsBlues

Anyone considering taking the path of no danger this year?

Im making one trade this week in which ill turn Holman into Zerriett and only having one upgrade spot providing Kelly plays (he could be someone else this week, cant afford to have 600k sitting there)

My team is as follows with 96k left over and 22 trades left

Laird, Lloyd, Ryan, Finlayson, Doedee, Murry (Mirra, Murphy)

Fyfe, Dusty, Jkelly, Titch, Cripps, Cogs, Zerrett, TKelly (Banfield, Coffield, Barry)

Gawn NicNat (Cameron)

Gray, Heeney, McClean, Trac, Fisher, Fritsch (Henry, Guelfi)

Trac and JKelly most likely out this week, but ill hold them both a little longer, that last midfield spot could be reserved for JPK who is well known for finishing the year like a bull in a china store.
Will be looking to Double down on Coffield and Banfield next week depending how Sprago and Worpel do this week/keep their spot

Holty01

Wh will be in my side at some point mate. Would scare me going into finals without him

BrownlowBoy
Jordan

Anyone like the look of treloar? I feel like I’ve missed the boat on cripps and I want to take a risk.

Frozen water bomber

Cant see him keeping his average as high as it is, he is bound to cop a tag some weeks. He does look a nice POD though, trust your gut jordan!

Sam_01

I’ve had him from the start 110 average top ten mid 2 years ago last year was a shocker for him. Pies are playing good footy at the moment and if it continues the rest of the year wouldn’t be surprised to see him hit 115 average looks to have cleaned up his game and so have the pies! Also he loves to thump Brisbane almost thinking of captaining him this week!

theRealPod

He's looking very good worth the risk

Lazza

Nah. Shite haircut.. 🙂

BrownlowBoy

His disposal is a lot better this year. Burnt me last year.

Derek

He is almost $600,000. That is a lot of dollars

TheGreatBozza

I wouldn't go him for now. Think there's better value elsewhere. Could bring him in post bye at a similar price

Frozen water bomber

Sicily or mclean?
Is the flog really the keeper everyone thinks he is? Mclean seems much safer, thoughts boys and girls?

Sana

Lids!

Frozen water bomber

No chance, not taking that risk! Have narrowed my choices down to these 2.

KSinny

Sicily is very good but I would go with McLean so you don't have to be benching him every few weeks.

Pete

Tough one maybe sic for some value

Rick Grimes

Any love for the Bont? More midfield minutes on the weekend and blasted out a big one.

Holty01

Thats the big question. How much time in the midfield will he get for the rest of the season? If i was told he would spend the rest of the season in the midfield id be selecting him right now

theRealPod

They played the Blues so maybe watch him one more week

The Ranger

Can't trust him at the moment Rick

Lazza

Although BE is 99, put him on the watch list.

hedski

Another week, another injury trade for hedski.
OUT – Flog Toby
IN – Good Toby
(Read my mind Patch and Lek).
Upgrade.
OUT – Banfield
IN – Jelwood
(Mine Patch, stick your rose and STAY AWAY!!)
Good on ya boys loved the pod.

INPieman

Like the Toby switch my friend. Jelwood also looking good

hedski

So p!ssed I picked Billings over good Toby.

The Ranger

Nice trades Hedski.
I got Walters to deal with and Flog James is making eyes at me.

hedski

Give him a wink Ranger, SURELY, he keeps his head on now??!

neil demonsdelight

Jelwood to fly home.Sicflog is risky but worth it I hope

hedski

I started Siciflog so riding that train home Neil, until he becomes my 7th injury next week.

SideshowBob

Do they have flights from Geelong to Bendigo?

Patch

It's okay I'm currently going behind Lekdog's back to get my rose to Zach Merrett so you're safe… for now…

Good Toby is far better than Flog Toby and I think you're making an excellent move, mi amigo. Love to hear you're enjoying el podcasto!

hedski

Buenos nachos

Russty_

Margaritas!

Westy

Toby or not Toby, that is the question (and the answer).

Shake_n_Bake_

Started with Selwood myself Hedski. So far so good. Was playing hurt last few weeks but saying he should be over that. Lets hope for some big scores from here out.

Crowboy94

What do people think of Duman?
Might go Banfield to him via DPP
Dont really see any good DEF rookies with good JS coming anytime soon.

Pete

If you think he has decent JS, for what its worth i dont

Crowboy94

Why do you think that? Johnson came back last week who was the one most people thought would come in for Duman. But Lyon seems to want to play both, and he is being very patient with rookies this year.

CheekyNandos7

The return of Johnson meant a drop in Duman's output as well btw 🙂

Crowboy94

So when everyone needs to downgrade DEF rookies in coming weeks who will they go to?? No DEF rookies in the 2s for most clubs are making a name for themselves. Duman may be one of very few….

Pete

That is fair point crowboy! Mihocek and stoddard still yet to debut but who knows if/when that will happen. Duman could be a good pick, only time will tell

Pete

Wce have more talls than most, would wait for teams. If named he will be a popular pick !

Filth Wizard

Thoughts please. I have both Walters and Franklin out and need to trade one I think, options are with $179k in bank.
1. Walters to McLean 1 x trade.
2. Walters and Murray to McLean and Sicily.
3. Walters and Holman to Cripps and a rookie. Will have $326k in bank after taking Cripps.

INPieman

I like option 2

theRealPod

Option 2 both potential top 6 players

Filth Wizard

Cheers would still have 25 trades left after that deal.

Phil

I like option 3

Bill

Who to bring in? Howe or Savage
